Elementary Program


6 – 12 years

In an invigorating research style of learning, elementary children work in small groups on a variety of projects which spark the imagination and engage the intellect. Lessons given by trained Montessori teachers direct the children toward activities which help them to develop reasoning abilities and the arts of life. The insatiable urge in children at his age to understand the universe and their place within it, directs the elementary work towards all aspects of culture. Elementary studies include geography, biology, history, language, mathematics in all its branches, science, music and art. Exploration of each area is encouraged through trips outside the classroom to community resources such as libraries, musea, planetaria, botanical gardens, science centers, factories, hospitals, etc. This inclusive approach to education fosters a feeling of connectedness to all humanity, and encourages the children’s natural desire to become contributing members of the human family.
